Overview

Bagheria Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom + external shower, can host 5 people -wide terrace&grdn

Independent villa over looking the sea with a breathtaking waterfront view. Direct access to the rocky coast, beside our property. Very private and quiet. Located in Mongerbino, 25 km from Palermo. It's in a strategic point to reach many towns and other sites, of artistic and cultural interest : Monreale, Cefalù, Solunto, Bagheria . Agrigento and its temples are one hour away. Very close to Mongerbino are seaports like Porticello and Aspra great for buying fresh fish . Also at only 50 meters away there is an access to the park of 'Monte Catalfano', great for hiking.

The house is entirely surrounded by a nice garden and has a very big terrace which is divided into two parts; one side is exposed to the sun and has a beautiful view of Capo Zafferano and the other side is protected by an awning which gives you privacy. The inside of the house has been remodelled and has a big and very sunny living room, a kitchen, master bedroom and two other bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms have a breattaking view of the sea. Of course a bathroom with a shower. The house is surrounded by windows and you have a beautiful view wherever you look. It's advisable to have a car because the closest centre is 3 km away.

Our concept of quality: Renting out villa Laura Marie, is carried out directly by the owners. We enjoy the house for some weeks during the year and we try to constantly improve it. We love the house and we hope this feeling reaches our guests while they stay in the villa.

Here are some things we can assure you:

- What you see (in the photos ) is what you get

- An accurate cleaning of the house before you arrive.

- A person that will greet you at the house ( usually the owners ), will show you the villa, explain to you whatever you need to know and answer any question . Written instructions about the house.

- The owner is available to answer any question during the reservation process and even after.

- There will be a great number of panphlets books and maps available in the house regarding Sicily and the area around Mongerbino.

At 50 meters from our villa there is an access to Monte Catalfano park. Some trails will bring you into the Mediterranean scrub and will let you observe from above the coast with Capo Zafferano, the village of Aspra and the town of Bagheria.

Train to Palermo: If you want to avoid using the car to arrive in Palermo, reach Bagheria or Santa Flavia Station, park you car and arrive in the city in 10-15 minutes

About Antonio D.

A clinical psychologist supported by his wife and daughter to take care of the villa. I like to receive our guests and I personally take care with some help of check-in and check-out; I consider very important to welcome the guests, make them feel confortable from the beginning and explain everything about the house and give some information about the area.

I love the villa and the nature around it ! We usually spend some weeks in July or August and some spring weekends when possible. I received this house from my parents and refurbished it in 2004 .

Why Antonio D. chose Palermo

For a full immersion in the nature, for the possibility of watching from the terrace the sea and the sky changing every hour, for a very close access at Monte Catalfano Park, for being a very quiet place at only 25 Km from Palermo. Also for getting a very clean house and for our attention at a simple but stylish interior.

We love this house, love to spend some weeks here and try to pass and share this feeling with our guests.

Glorious and Wonderful Villa - Sarah-Tony-Ben-Sam

  • 5 of 5

The house is light and breezy, facing the gorgeous Mediterranean with all its sparkle and blue. Capo Zefferano looms to the East (right, facing the sea) and the hills behind Palermo to the West. The house feels secluded even though there are neighbors on both sides. The patios are wonderful and one can always find shade as the sun moves around, behind, the house over the course of the day. The kitchen is more than functional and has the "right" pots for vacation cooking with a family. The beds are comfortable (we slept four in three rooms) and the living space is big enough to be able to find a private nook for reading or thinking. (TV and WiFi are good.) The gulls and doves "debate, argue, and comment" amusingly, through the day. The mosquitos are a fact of life but as long as you prepare for them and keep the screen doors closed, all is well. The house is quiet, surrounded by lovely gardens tended to by Vincenzo and nestled up snug against its cliff; even the busy weekend traffic on single-laned Via Perez is not noticeable. Porticello is close by for shopping and there are numerous green markets there. Day excursions to Cefalú or Trapani or Agrigento are easily done. For a day trip to Palermo, one can take the short (15 minute) train trip from Bagheria but one needs a car to reach the station. In fact, a car is pretty much necessary for this property, although my son and I did walk to Porticello for groceries one day. It's about 8 kilometres round trip and uphill much of the way back. (Just a note, a small car with an excellent turning radius is preferable for negotiating the steep driveway and small turn around at the bottom.) The swimming is not for little children but is otherwise spectacular. Steep steps lead down to the rocky base of the cliff. On carefully sliding over barnacled rocks decorated with mossy seaweed into the sea, one is immediately in deep water with swell and, depending on the wind and tide, some waves sloshing into the rocky cove. Once past those waves the swimming is delightful There is occasionally a tow. For swimming with small children there are two beaches off the road to Porticello. There are plenty of places to eat in beautiful Porticello. Antica Pizzeria La Punta is worth it just for the view, but the food is excellent as well. The property was very clean when we arrived and Antonio and Debbie are terrific hosts. We would enthusiastically recommend this property to others and also to our family.

Two more thoughts on the VillaLauraMarie -

  • 5 of 5

The wifi and TV are excellent (we have been watching the EuroCup for the whole week. Also, the pictures on line represent the house and property as they are. It really is as beautiful as they suggest!

A heavenly place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday and out time spent at the villa was so relaxing and enjoyable. The terrace is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy the beautiful scenery - we will always remember that special view....some days it was difficult to leave and explore the island! The villa was very comfortable. Thank you Antonio for all your help with the reservation prior to our arrival and for everything you did once we were there.

charming villa, well located

  • 5 of 5

A truly charming Mediterranean villa, very conveniently located. Here we enjoyed the calm and the view, while Palermo and the other main sightseeing sites were easy to reach.

The very well organised owner , who doesn't live on the spot, provided us with lots of informations, links and useful tips about this beautiful region . He was also flexible and supportive, for instance when we needed to match our meetings with our flights.

Paradise lost when we finally had to leave .

A fantastic villa with breathtaking views!

  • 4 of 5

This villa is wonderful! The views are amazing. The villa is very private - not overlooked at all and it is comfortable. It was clean on arrival and well maintained and equipped. The private steps down to the sea are steep, so wouldn't be suitable for young children, but we loved walking down and swimming and snorkelling in the clear, warm waters. If you're not used to 25 degs at night, there are ceiling fans in all the rooms but no aircon. The gas for the cooker had run out on arrival, but Antonio the owner is very responsive and this was sorted within an hour of us calling the next day. Lots of information is provided about local amenities and places to visit in the surrounding area. The temple at Segesta was amazing and the restaurant 'La Rotunda' at Casteldaccia was wonderful. The local ruined settlement at Solunto (very close) was spectacular! Antonio and Deborah were really lovely and Antonio was fantastic at responding to any questions we had - including helping us sort out what to do about a parking ticket we had!! We highly recommend this villa and hope to return! :-)

Villa Laura Marie is in Mongerbino, in a very quiet area but only 25 km from Palermo, and 6 km. from the highway ( Palermo-Catania ) in a strategic point to visit western and central Sicily.

Very close to Mongerbino seaports like Porticello , full of restaurants, and Aspra, both great for buying fresh fish. In Bagheria ( 10 minutes away ), known for the villas that noble people built in the 18th century, you can find whatever you need ( stores, food shops, gift shops and a variety of services ) and visit villa Palagonia and the gallery of villa Cattolica.

At only 50 meters from the gate of the house the access to the park of 'Monte Catalfano': easy trails that bring you to wonderful views of the coast and of near towns and villages, great for hiking.

Very close the ellenistic site of Solunto, with a beautiful view of the coast. .

Palermo, the capital of Sicily is a big Mediterranean city, rich of artistic sites and full of the traces of the different peoples and civilizations of its past ( Romans, Arabs, Normans, Swabians and Bourbons ). You can not miss Palermo's baroque palaces and churches, the Byzantine mosaics of the Palatine chapel, the cathedral that unites Gothic and Norman art.

In the vicinity other sites of artistic and cultural interest (Monreale, Cefalù, Solunto). Agrigento and its temples are about one hour away as Trapani.
